Adult Faith Formation (RCIA) Newsletter

Week of March 27 - April 2 2022

The Lenten season is in full swing now and I hope everyone using this time for prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Thank you for all who attended class last week. The Elect were able to spend an hour in Adoration with Father Avram and the Inquirers and Catechumenates learned about the Mass with John Thoo.

This Wednesday at 6:30PM will be all about Prayer. The Inquirers and Catechumenates will learn more about what prayer is and will be praying the Rosary prayer together. The Elect will prepare for their Presentation of the Lord’s Prayer on Sunday with a lesson from Ed M about the Lord’s Prayer.

Why Is Prayer So Hard?

Last week in class we got on the topic of the Feast Day of the Annunciation which we celebrated last Friday. I talked about how I started the tradition of having waffles for dinner and what that has to do with the feast day. Here is the article if anyone is interested in starting that tradition with their families!

This coming Sunday, April 3 at 10am Mass our Catechumens who will be received into the Catholic Church this Easter will have their third and final Scrutiny, and all of the Elect will receive the Presentation of the Lord’s Prayer. After the rites all participants will be dismissed for Breaking Open the Word like usual.

Next Sunday, April 10 is Palm Sunday! After the 10am Mass we will be having a Potluck Brunch for all RCIA Participants and their families in the Assisi Room. So bring a dish to share and come celebrate Palm Sunday and the upcoming Easter Vigil!

Then Monday, April 11 will be our Penance Service for our baptized Elect. We will meet in the church for a time of prayer and worship and go to Reconciliation for the first time.
